In today's global economy, intense competition, employee mobility, and proliferation of spin-off and startup businesses make protection of trade secrets critical.
Appropriate trade secret identification and protection is often underrated but is equally as critical as patents or other forms of intellectual property protection that may require public disclosure.
The most effective way to protect trade secrets is first to identify what qualifies for protection and then to develop and implement sophisticated trade secret policies and procedures tailored for your business.
